german language

University pioneers are young people with parents without an academic background who are interested in higher education. With the involvement of schools, alumni and business, the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences has developed a programme to motivate university pioneers and to offer support during the course of their studies as well as for the start of their careers. Additionally, around six scholarships are offered annually for new students.
